of anonymity or the police chief in boston speaking to the record, and obama to some extent that we're going to find you hunt you down and get you. like, all that does is fuel the conversation that we're having now to a greater extend, like i just wish we lived in a country where it was ok to say obviously we're investigating this and we're not going to stop until we solve it we've got to have the george bush cowboy talk, even if it's not george bush. it seems silly and like it's out of a bad summer blockbuster. cenk: i don't mind people speculating. is a keep saying over and over again, we're all curious and talking about it. the media demand that everybody in the government call it a terrorist act. like ok, i got it, to ben's point, it looks like terrorism i think it is. i would call it whether it was right wing, leftwing, forever et cetera, but stop with obama didn't call it terrorism, i can't believe it, he's soft. what's he soft about. first of all he killed bin laden, stop with the talk. >> i think that comes from the hesitation, i'd be curious to know what that thinking was not to cal

in this country since 9/11. and former top advisor to president obama, david axelrod, about how the white house is handling this situation. >>> but we begin in boston where the back bay has been transformed into a crime scene sealed off for blocks and law enforcement try to determine who was behind monday's deadly attack at the boston marathon. of course this all began at about ten minutes to 3:00 on monday. about four hours into the race when an explosion went off just yards from the finish line. then about 15 seconds later a second explosion about 500 feet down the road. at least three people were killed in the blasts, one of them was 8-year-old martin richard whose father was in the race. his mother and sister suffered serious injuries. at least 126 people are still hospitalized. ten of them possibly as many as 17 in critical condition following the attack. >> there was cloud everywhere and, yeah, it was loud. it was really, really loud and then people just chaos everywhere. >> there was just families all around us with kids yelling and screaming and -- i mean we just wanted to try and get a
in the room. president obama didn't use the word terrorism. became a little bit of a political football. but bottom line, forget about left versus right what are the practicalities about what language you use and how it may hinder or help going forward? >> what the president did not want to do is panic people before information was in. so that was a smart move not to use the "t" word, terrorism. but he also doesn't want to give a future defense attorney the ability to say, oh, well there wasn't a political motive with this guy. he was just some random -- >> political motive key to a finding of terrorism. >> so it's a nonstory. i don't know why people are raising it. everyone knows this was an act of terror. we should drop that. there's no brownie points to be gained at this stage. let's let the investigators figure out who did this and the response and life goes on. this seems to me just to be a very silly issue. >> don't handcuff yourself before you know what you're dealing with. >> exactly. we have no idea right now. >> all right, julia, thank you very much. >> up next we're going to
. president obama spoke from the white house yesterday evening. >> we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> a theme of this year's race was 26 miles for 26 victims. a message of remembrance of the newtown school shooting. many of the victims' family members were there at the finish line tent yards from where the blasts occurred. you can imagine that, it is tuesday, april 16th, and we're live in boston this morning, just about five blocks from the site of double bombing, those explosions yesterday near the finish line of the boston marathon. joining us now we have with us for the whole show today, mike barnicle. and in new york, willie geist. you've been covering this since the story broke. we've been listening to your words, your reporting, your words of calm. a day later, how is this sinking in? >> well,
that at this juncture except that he is in the hospital. president obama has addressed the nation and promised justice. but he made one mistake. the president called the attack a tragedy. it was not. it was a vial act of violence. designed to kill innocent people, including children. i was just in boston yesterday, and this makes me sick! so far no one has claimed responsibility for the attack. perhaps it's a coincidence but this week marks the anniversary of attacks in oklahoma city, columbine, colorado, and virginia tech. also the waco assault in 1993. joining us now from washington congressman peter king, a member of the house homeland security committee. so, congressman, what can you tell us tonight? >> well, as you said, bill, this is absolutely horrific. it's detestable and has only the marks of a terrorist attack. in fact, the way it was carried out and to me there is no doubt in my mind that this is a terrorist attack. i know there is a person of interest, i guess they are calling him now. but, to me, this reminds me very much of the attack on times square in 2010 by shahzad and also we have t
